Just in case you needed the reminder. Just in case you’re feeling completely overwhelmed. Just in case you needed someone else to tell you to step back. Take a breather. Take a moment to gather your thoughts or say a prayer or sit in silence or go for a walk. Then come back to facing whatever you’re facing.
I’m hearing my mom’s words in my head today. When I would get overwhelmed she used to always tell me, Just take it one step at a time. Easier said than done, I always thought. But she’s right. When you look at your list of a million to-do’s, when you think of all that is expected of you, when you think too much about how overwhelmed you are, this can and will hinder you from being able to break it down and just start with one thing.
Start with just one thing. Check it off your list and go to the next thing. And then the next. Before you know it, you’re making progress. All the while, don’t forget the big picture. The really big picture. That’s going to mean something different for everyone. Whatever it means to you, don’t forget it. Helps keep everything in perspective.
I needed to remind myself of this today and I have a feeling some of you need this today too.
